Is it tilted all the way forward Make sure that the front centre seat is as far forward as possible and the rear centre seat is slid as far back as possible before trying to remove it. Might help
Ive noticed on the newer multiplas the front middle seat is welded in position (I assume for safety reasons) and because it sits much further back than the other seats it makes removing (and replacing) the rear middle seat a lot harder. The process I use is fold down the front seat fold down the rear seat release the rear seat latches with the pull strap lift up the rear seat as far as it will go (the
From day 1 with this particular Multi Ive had to remove the headrest on the middle rear seat to get enough clearance to tilt the seat forward enough to release it. Might be worth trying.
[quoteCraigrandall1326232] I took the seats out to do some moving and can get the two side ones back in but I cant get the middle one back in. The front hooks wont pop in especially the left one. It seems like the plastic raiselower seat back lever gets in the way of letting the front left hook slip in to its barhook. Help my in-laws are coming into town from the US today and I need it in to pick them
The rear middle seat sits on an adjustable sliding frame if the chair isnt slid all the way back (or forward cant quite remember but think it is back) then it wont refit into the floor brackets. This had me scratching my head for a while when it first happened.

They do but Ive never managed to get the middle one out. Follow the cord under the set to the rear tug on it. It pulls a lever freeing the rear of the seat from the floor. Then tip the seat forward (good idea to remove head restraint 1st). You then have access to the locking bar (which is a sort of torsion bar affair) which you twist to free the front of the base from the floor. In true fiat fashion just watch one of the springs ping off. Hope this helps. Disgusted of Tunbridge Wells
Ive had all 3 rear seats out they are numbered (picture on the base) and need to go back in the order they came out. The centre seat needs its head restraint removing but the outer ones are fine Folding the middle front seat down helps too
I think that my middle one wont come out because theres some glass under the hinge. We were broken into.
I had much trouble removing the rear center seat the back middle seat on our 2003. The trick seems to be sliding the seat all the way back before using the strap release and then the bar release. Hope this helps someone.
We have had both a rear facing and a front facing child seat in the middle. As said previously you must switch off the passenger airbag. A light will appear on the dash to confirm that it is disabled.
I think you should be able to replace the cable without taking it out anyway or do as ive done on the middle rear seat and take the plastic cover off and fit a set of molegrips onto the leaver its lazy but it works a treat.

being twisted. So the resistance of the bar - its an anti-roll bar - to this twisting tries to keep the car level as it corners so you dont end up falling out of your seat. When the rubber bushes wear out they can no longer hold on to the middle of the roll bar allowing it to waggle around a bit and eventually hit some other metal bits under the car so you get a clanking. Thats at the front. The multipla

in the middle. Only concern people ever had about that was that you couldnt swap the seats around not sure why that was a problem though. I cant quite be 100% sure but I think the mk2 had 3 same sized seats but again they may have made the middle one slightly smaller to give the outer seats which are mainly used more room. So if the car you saw had a bench seat it wasnt a scenic. Never sat in a multipla
Which is a shame really. I have popped over the other Multi Forum but its a Yahoo groups thing and I hate those. I have browsed around though and I would hardly say it is avoid of general chit chat Maybe if they got some different message board softwareservice provider then I might go over more often. Itll be sad to see you go away though Moriarty. The more Multi drivers who post her the better in
Just as a matter of interest Ive done the measurement from the rear of the middle front seat to the back seat as well. I folded the front seat back down on to its squab. Then pushing the seat forward from the back of the folded front seat back to the front on the seat behind it is about 9 inches. When it is slid back this reduces to about 6.5 inches. Does this help at all

I had a look at the runners. It would appear that both parts of the runner have actually been welded together Anyroadup the conclusion is that its simply not possible to use the middle rear seat if its brought forward into a different position. Shame. but there you go
Bugger frankly. Thought Id been clever there. Oh well. The only possible reason I can think of to slide the middle rear seat forward is to use it as a table when there are people sitting in the rear. It sort of makes sense but I would much prefer to have the rear middle seat unmoveable (apart from on it clipped floor mounts obviously) and the front center seat on a slider. I am an adult (I think). I want to decide where I have my front seats A shame that.
Not illegal as long as the seatbelts on the outer two can work as lap-belts. In my 92 Espace I regularly fitted the middle seats backwards (as they were designed to be used if required) so you were facing the passengers in the rear seats. The kids loved it. Same with the swivelling mid-seats in my old Lucida.
I have a seat in the front middle and dont turn the airbags because there is no airbag for that seat but I think you only need to switch them off for rear facing seats.Someone one here will know for sure
listed on their website as being a past (or indeed current) model. Im never sure with these things where you sleep - is it in the pop up bit Or is that just for headroom Maybe a bit of overkill for me Id just like to be able to pull over and have a kip comfortably - if British Leyland was able to fit a double bed of sorts in a Maxi (wheelbase shorter than a Corsa) then it must be possible in a multipla.

I just want to check that this isnt just me being dumb... All three of the back seats can be positioned in different slots so that they are about 10 cm further forwards (or backwards). In addition the middle seat can slide in the same way that the drivers seat can. Now both myself and my wife are about 5ft 8in so we have the drivers and passenger seat fairly well pulled forwards which means that we

Strange Our 54 reg (new shape) has a sliding front middle seat. It doesnt slide as far forward as the left and right front seats but the mechanism is the same. Maybe its a difference between the Dynamic and Eleganza Checked the multipla brochures (2004 & 2007) and theres no mention of it - only that the Eleganza has a sliding central rear seat Maybe the front and rear middle seats slide on the Eleganza only

[quotelenivec1317186] hello can someone help me i am buying a multipla and want to know some mesurements. is it possible to put surfboard in it. lenght 270cm or what is the max lenght from dash to boot doors.[ quote] Assuming the front middle seat is taken out or replaced with a fridge the maximum length possible with the rear centre seat folded flat is 220cm. You might squeeze another few centimeters
[quotelenivec1322575] yeah 280cm 10cm over another question are both co-drivers seats flat-foldable or just middle one[ quote] On mine neither fold fully forward like the rear seats do but both fold back far enough for the headrest to touch the seat behind it. Ive a fridge where the centre seat would be in my multipla (sold) so I dont know if this seat is meant to fold fully forward. Youve got to remember
Ive had my multipla jtd for over 2 years now I never get bored with like I have done with previous cars and Ive had plenty of prestige cars its very versitile and if you think the boot area is too small seats can be removed if you remove 1 seat it makes a good difference to what you can fit in the boot I drove to italy in september in mine and brought back 4 motorcycles (one on the rack) I took out
I too was going to get a roof box after having changed a Galaxy for my multipla. However having just completed our annual trip to the airport with six of us in the car plus six suitcases a buggy and several items of hand luggage in the boot I can say im pleasantly suprised at how cavernous the boot space is. With the outermost rear seats in the forward position I can still sit in them quite comfortably
Genghis if youve got 3 kids and camping is your thing you might find the boot a little small. Centre Parcs are fine as you dont have to take your tent cooker and all the other kit associated with living in a field for a week. Ive got 3 kids and weve done camping I had a 350 litre roofbox and I took the middle rear seat out and I ended up weighing all the stuff as I was concerned about AUW. I toyed with the idea of a trailer but in the end went for a Citroen C4GP. Multis are great cars surprisingly agile and practical but they need a hands on approach and those hands need hyper-mobility and a familiarity with spanners Parts are not that expensive Citroen prices make fiat look like theyre giving em away

Ok FYI access to the fuel sender unit is under the rear seats directly between the middle and right hand seat if you intend removing the unit i would recommend that you buy a new seal first as its probably best to change this. To access the panel you need to remove all 3 rear seats unscrew the 4 load hooks that are bolted to the chassis remove the plastic trim that is under the rear 2 doors (3 screws
Hi Shaun all done and the tank back on just got to get it running to test it do you know the easiest way to the fuel pump without having to take up all the carpet is it located under the middle of the boot or under the back middle seat.... cheers NOTE Anybody removing the fuel tank from the rear of the car it is a nightmare to get the bolts back in best thing to do is to slacken the front bolts on
It does replace the middle front seat which seems a bit of a waste one of the main attractions of the Multi is that it seats six. You do see these on Ebay from time to time but theyre getting scarce. Suspect that it wasnt widely taken up as an option if it replaced the middle rear seat it would have made more sense as you could have swapped seatfridge as required. martyc5674 liked this post
We have the passenger air bag off even though my son sits middle-rear now. That was for when he sat front left. Loads of room in the boot even with the rear seats in the rearmost position
I think you misunderstood the last answer. Turning off the passenger airbag means you can put a rear facing child seat in the middle seat. Our youngest was there till she went into a bigger seat then she went in the back.
